to lecture senator dianne feinstein about guns. she has a bill that would restore the assault weapons ban which expired. and as our colleague rachel maddow pointed out last night, this ban might have prevented the newtown shooter from getting a buschmaster assault rifle. why is it that republicans say they share your concern about gun violence, but whenever there's an opportunity to do something, they simply turn and walk in the opposite direction? >> yes. the irony is that this is an extraordinary example of political cowardace by people like ted cruz and those who are so easily swintimidated by the nra. senator feinstein has tremendous courage, as well as being one of the sharpest intellects in the united states senate. the vast majority of her colleagues know that. cruz is a newbie. perhaps he doesn't realize the kind, the level of respect that has been earned from senator feinstein's colleagues. but to do that, what it did was really to marginalize senator cruz. now, clearly he's trying to stake out a political position to the right of the republican party and it keeps getting more an

. senator dianne feinstein delivered on her hearing on her bill to ban assault weapons. after senator ted cruz tried to instruct her on the constitution, the good senator from california replied with this. >> i'm not a sixth grader. senator, i've been on this committee for 0 years. i was a mayor for nine years. i walked in, i saw people shot. i studied the constitution myself. i'm reasonably well educated, and i thank thank you for the lecture. incidentally, this does not prohibit--you used the word prohibit--it exempts. 2271 weapons. isn't that enough for the people in the united states? do they need a bazooka. >> john: nice lecture, senator cruz. the bad news, senator feinstein apologized to senator cruz later. but hey she has to work with the guy. those people who were shot were harvey milk and senator marscone. >>> the riots erupted after the shooting of 16-year-old kimani gray. one officer was injured but behind this protest is a larger story. most people shot by police in in 2011 were black like, kimani gray or hispanic. and they are routinely detained by police. the police have bee
not. so when he suggests to dianne feinstein. >> or lectures. >> or lectures she is violating the second amendment that this impinges on second amendment right that is false. this isn't opinion. this is fact. read the damn case law. he keeps doing it and it's driving me crazy because he is supposedly a learned man. >> i think has leads to the next point. we are talking about politics. senator cruz has not just on these issues but on a variety of issues has decided he is going to stake out some turf that is right in the sweet spot of the most conservative, most populist, most red meat tea party elements of his party and decided to do it on a variety of things. he has done it on chuck hagel and done it throughout and with a tone of disrespect that is upsetting a lot of republicans and upsetting a lot of democrats every time he rares his head since he has been in the senate. he hasn't been there very long. he takes this tone and adopted this position to advance some kind of a gender that is trying to get him in a particular place with the republican party. >> i don't mind people

with these weapons. >> that was senator dianne feinstein and junior senator ted cruz of texas in a heated exchange on whether to restore assault weapons ban which was passed under former president clinton and then allowed to expire under former president george w. bush. the bill ultimately passed the senate judiciary committee 10-8 along party lines. but after all that outrage and bluster, we've learned that senate majority leader harry reid has decided to remove the assault weapons ban from a larger reform package. it will, instead, be voted on as an amendment. nbc's mike viqueira joins us live now. mike, what happened? why did the majority leader decide that 157 different models of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines did not deserve to be a part of a broader bill to ensure that tragedies like that in aurora, in newtown, connecticut, never happen again? what's happened? >> reporter: well, you know, harry reid was faced with a very fundamental question, martin. he could put on what is essentially an unpopular measure, dianne feinstein notwithstanding, and that's a renewal of the assault we

a great press conference where senator boxer and senator feinstein, representative pelosi, and they talked very glowingly about moms who were there. 250 moms were there, and we had more than 100 meetings with our legislators today to demand common sense gun laws. >> michael: a lot of the names you just mentioned are names we would expect to be in favor of changing the gun laws we have now. what about representatives on the hill who are opposed to these gun laws? >> live in indiana, so i had four different meetings with representatives and senator staff from my state, and the democrats and republicans alike are very progun in the state of indiana. but they hear constantly from members of the nra and gun lobbyists who tell them that, you know, we are trying to ban all guns or take away the second amendment and we need to come more often and in district and make the calls to show that we are 80 million strong, the nra is 4 million strong and if we ban together we'll make a difference. >> michael: you mentioned that some of these meetings were emoti

for it and every republican against it. a vote on a separate plan by california democrat dine feinstein to ban assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines was delayed. the federal aviation administration today approved boeing's plan to redesign the troubled batteries on its 787 "dreamliner." in several instances, the lithium ion batteries have overheated or caught fire. as a result, the entire fleet of "dreamliners" was grounded earlier this year. the f.a.a. says extensive testing of the redesigned batteries will be needed before the planes can return to service. the top u.s. intelligence official warned today that north korea's tough talk and provocative actions pose a serious challenge. national intelligence director james clapper appeared at a senate hearing on global threats. clapper said north korea's young leader, kim jong un, is proving unpredictable. his regime recently staged a long-range missile launch and nuclear test, and has threatened a nuclear strike against the u.s. . >> the rhetoric propaganda-laced is also an indicator of their attitude and perhaps their intent. fo
. >> sean: let me go to the rhetoric of the left, it's getting out of control. according to dianne feinstein, it's legal, i didn't know this, to go hunting for humans, this is what she said. >> the time has come, america, to step up and ban these weapons. the other very important part of this bill is to ban large capacity ammunition feeding devices, those that hold over ten rounds. we have federal regulations and state laws that prohibit hunting ducks with more than three rounds, and yet, it's legal to hunt humans with 15 round, 30 round, even 150-round magazines. >> sean: all right, two points here, i didn't know it was legal to hunt humans, that may be in some part of the country that i don't know about. that's number one, but she did say there ban weapons, which is what i think the goal is. and what if there's invasion, three or four people come in your house, seven bullets in new york, ten bullets nationally may not be enough. >> the fact is when you're in a gun fight with bad people, you never say i wish i had less rounds. and a 30-round magazine is actually standard. mag poll is going

well know, where the chair, dianne feinstein, the sponsor on the judiciary committee of the assault weapon ban, basically sent ted cruz back to school for his approach and his challenge to run constitutional grounds. but here was wayne lapierre today speaking to cpac. >> the vice president of the united states actually told women facing an attack, to just empty their shotguns into the air. honestly, have they lost their minds over at the white house? >> do you have any response to mr. lapierre? >> i think that mr. lapierre -- public handling of the aftermath of newtown has been amply ann analyzed and discussed and has not been particularly helpful for his cause or the more important cause, which is reducing gun violence in america and i think that's an assessment that is widely held. what we need are partners in a cause that should not divide democrats from republicans, because the victims of gun violence are not democrats or republicans, they're americans and sometimes they are six and 7-year-old americans. the president believes we need to take steps, common-sense steps that reduc
, feinstein's proposal and others. what david is pointing out, what you are seeing is similar to the anti-tobacco debate and apartheid debate where congress and washington were the lagging indicators of public opinion so you saw a lot of action happening in the states. colorado is not just the only place, a number of there states are thinking object taking action. it's a much, much better indicator of how quickly public opinion is shifting on something. i think you will see movement in the states and eventually you will see movement at the federal level as well. >> i hope that's the case. david, one-third of homes in colorado have a gun. including of course, the governor's. but the shootings in aurora profoundly effected him. especially after attending so many funerals. i have to ask you, is that what it takes to get changes to the legislation passed? i mean, should we send every member of the house of representatives to the next series of funerals when there's a mass shooting so that they can actually feel the profound impact of these weapons on the life of ordinary citizens of this coun
-defense and you can ban others like senator feinstein's bazooka and ted cruz is a jerk, and that is why we sent him to washington. >> and you have senator joe manchin who is a key person here who has an a-rating from the nra and involved in bipartisan talks to hammer out a deal in bipartisan deals, and could a key in reaching a deal be the partisanship happening in this committee meeting? >> well, i certainly believe that joe manchin thinks he is a key, but he is having a hard time not only convincing the republican colleagues, but also other democratic colleagues especially those who are up for election. ted cruz is not going to win any miss congenial ti awards and he is someone who has strong opinion, and it is going to take him a while to understand the bigger senate culture, but he is certainly someone who is not, a little bit of a bull in the china shop is exactly how i'd put it. >> and so not one of the lawmakers here, and perhaps one of the solutions that is talking about, and there are efforts under way in the private sector to try to tackle gun violence, and i will play a clip for you

're in the situation room. u.s. senator dianne feinstein made news on tuesday when she promised to keep fighting for a ban on semiautomatic weapons like the one used to massacre these children and teachers in newtown, connecticut even though democratic leaders say they can't get enough votes to pass it. >> this is very important to me. and i'm not going to lay down and play dead. i think the american people have said in every single public poll that they support this kind of legislation. it's aimed to protect children, to protect schools, animald mal. it is aimed to dry up the supply of these over time. and it came out on a 10-8 vote of the judiciary committee. not to give me a vote on this would be a major betrayal of trust as i would see it. >> front page of today's "new york daily news" calls it a shame. the assault weapons ban is effectively dead at least for now. cnn's mary snow is in newtown, connecticut right now. she is asking people there what they think about all of this. what do they think, mary? >> reporter: emotional reaction, wolf. there are people here who have taken on an active

republican ted cruz and california democrat dianne feinstein who was the bill's sponsor. when senator cruz questioned over how congress could limit rights under the second amendment when the same lawmakers would never likely consider a similar measure limiting rights under the first amendment or the fourth amendment. here is some of that encounter. >> this does not prohibit, you used the word prohibit, it exempts, 2,271 weapons. isn't that enough for the people in the united states? do they need a bazooka? do they need other high powered weapons that military people use to kill in close combat? i don't think so. so i come from a different place than you do. i respect your view. i ask you to respect my view. >> nobody doubts her sincerity or passion, but yet at the same time she chose not to answer the question that i asked, which is in her judgment would it be consistent with the constitution for congress to specify which books are permitted and which books are not. >> the answer is obvious. no. >> megyn: steve centanni joins us live now from washington with more, steve. >> reporter: well
